[N consequence of the great number of complaints which
have for a long time been made by Emigrants, of frauds
'ommitted ujhmi them in the sending of money to their
frieuds in Ireland, and to aid and protect the Emigrant,
the Irish Kmigrant Society established a fund, deposited
in tiie Bank of Ireland, upon which they draw drafts,
payable at sight, at any of the branches of the Bank.
Persons residing out of the city, by enclosing in a letter
i he sum they wish forwardud, with the plainly written
direction to whom and where it is to be paid, will have the
same remitted.
There is a great advantage in purchasing the Society's
draft*?that the Bank has a branch in each ol' the princi
pal towns in Ireland, and thus the losses by discount, and
otherwise, are avoided.
The Society keeps an office at No. 22 Spruce street, to
which Kmigrant* can apply to obtain situatious for which
tliey are fitted.
Orders from employers in the country, stating the ser
vices required, the wage*, and the cheapest modes of con
veyance, and giving a respectable reference, will meet with
prompt attention.
The Society will he tliMnkfu! for all circumstantial and
early Information of any fraud, imposition, or outrage
committed on Kmigrant*, and will endeavor speedily to
ipply a remedy. GREGORY DILLON, 1'resideut.

Love is a beat, full of coolness;
A sweet, of bitterness full;
A pain, terming with pleasantness
Shrewd and discerning, yet dull.
Love's a chameleon, and fecdetl)

Fiiie Annihilatoh.?The Baltimore American
says: Tho English invention under this name
is attracting much attention in this country,
where the losses by fire, and the costly systems
established for its extinguishment, involve an
nually large sums of money. The wonderful
efficiency attributed to it, in the rapid and cer
tain extinguishment of tho devastating element
by the simplest means and at a trifling cost, is
well calculated to gain for it universal favor,
and therefore it cannot be long before the An
nihilator will be practically tested in the United
States. Indeed, it is already stated, in a card
in the St. Louis Republican, that Mr. Thomas
Davenport has received from tho Patent Office
in \\ ashington an acknowledgment of the re
ceipt of a deed from the London Fire Annihila
tor Company, assigning to him that portion of
the patent secured for their machine in the
United States, which controls the State of Mis
souri, and that he hopes in a few weeks to be
able to demonstrate tho wonderful efficacy of
the invention. We shall watch earnestly for the
St. Louis demonstration, and in the meantime
we give an interesting article on the subject,
lurnished to the ^ew \ork Courier by ix corres
pondent. The writer says:
It is known as "Phillips' Fire Annihilator,"
and is now in successful operation and use in
England. So entirely has it answered the ex
pectation of its inventors, that it has already
been introduced into tho residences of the no
bility, from the Queen down?and also into the
Crystal Palace. Lord Brougham recently stated
in 1 arliainent that he intended soon to submit
a proposition that no vessel bo allowed to go
to sea without a supply of these Annihilators on
"Phillips' Fire Annihilator" extinguishes fire
| without use of water. The machines are of va
rious sizes, depending upon tho use to which
they are required to be applied. Those ordiua
rily used for the protection of dwellings and
stores are about the size of a coal scuttle, and
weigh about twenty pounds each. They aro
made of strong sheet iron, somewhat in the form
of a pail, with a strong cover, and with various
compartments inside. Within these several
divisions are placed a number of chemi
cal preparations, which, when brought into
contact by a simple mechanical contrivance,
produce an imtfft^e volume of gaseous vapor
or steam, which rushes out from an aperture in
the cover, and fills the room.
The Annihilator instantly envelopes itself and
the person holding it in an atmosphere which
can bo breathed, and at the same time keeps at
!my and extinguishes all flame in the apartment.
The London Times says: Mr. Phillips gave a
sort of explanatory lecture, and stated that the
great advantages possessed by the gas employed
by him over water were as follows: The gas
was evolved at a temperature of about 100 de
I rrees Fahrenheit, and came in contact with
name having a temperature of about 300 de
crees, ami under which temperature it could
not exist. The gas absorbel part of this heat,
and not only in proportion to itfc original vol
ume, but expanded as much as a hundred times
more, each part still retaining highly absorbent
I will glance at a few of the advantages of
this invention over water in extinguishing fire.
It is directly at hand, and can be ap
plied at once, without giving an alarm. In
nine cases out of ten, fires when first discovered
are confined to one room; and, although the
room may be so filled with smoke and flume as
to be entirely inaccessible with the ordinary
apparatus of water, yet with one of these fire
annihilate!* in hand, the room can be entered
with safety ami the flames at once extinguished.
With the present tardy arrangement an alarm
is given, and before water from the engines can
I* brought to bear upon the fire, tho whole
house may be in flames.
Stroud. The gas or vapor, when thrown into
n room, permeates every part and performs its
office, without being directed to any particular
point. Water has no effect upon a jinme, that
clement which spreads and communicates the
fire. Plrenien know very well It is useless to
(?lay upon a flame.
Third. A child of ten years can operate the
\nnihilator, for he has ouly to turn a plug,
(live a rap with hin fist, then throw it into the
room on (Ire, and the work is done. Water is
noi always at hand, and if it were, the room
cannot probably he entered so as to throw it
up<>n the burning part.
Fourth. Tin gas from the Annihilator is per
fectly harmlesa to goods, dresses or furniture,
that may be In the room. It ia well known that
i< al?out as injurious as fire.
It may well tie a*ked, why it Is that an inven
tion of such practieal importance should be in
mk'cmsIViI operation a whole year in England,
before it is introduced into this country? The
?nly answer I ean iis, that the English
patentee* and monopolists have hoped to ad
vance its value and price in this country, by its
increasing European reputation. If this be
I me, they hate exhibited a very selAsh and
illiberal spirit toward* us.
According to the Albany Atlas, Phillips' Fire
Annihilator "seems to Itethe same as that men
tioned many years since by Southey, in Es
prella's Letters, which was never got into u?e,
because of the firemen, who, in London, are a
hired and exclusive class."
The Next CongrtKi?The Presidency*
We condense the following atutemeht and
estimates from an urticle in tho Maysville Post
Full delegations have been chosen to the next
Congress from eighteen of the thirty-one States.
These include the three great States of New
York, Pennsylvania, and (Tiiio. As some time
intervenes bctweeu the present and any of the
coming congressional elections, it seems a suit
able moment to review the ground. The follow
ing table is explicit:
r. a.
' 0
It will be seen that the Democrats have a
clear majority in the above States of from six
to twenty-two, as we count the Democratic
Free-soilers for or against them.
The thirteen States which have not yet elected
members of Congress were represented in the
last House by twenty-eight Whigs, sixty Demo
crats, and one Democratic Free-soiler. It is not
at all probable they will do this at the np
proaching elections. Several of them, especially
Georgia, Mississippi, ami Alabama, are merging
old party divisions. In these States, Union
and Disunion are the rallying points. In Vir
ginia the same issue will enter largely into the
contest. How far they will alter the result is
now impossible to foresee.
In the event of there being no election of
President by the people, the choice will devolve
upon the House of Representatives. Jiach
State, through its delegation, will be entitled to
a vote. As there are thirty-one States, the
votes of sixteen States will be necessary to an
election. In the above eighteen States the!
Whigs have majorities; Vermont, Massachusetts,
Florida, Michigan, and Missouri?5; the Demo
crats, in Maine, New Jersey, Delaware, Penn
sylvania, South Carolina, Illinois, and Iowa?7.
1 The Free-soilers have Wisconsin ? 1. New
I Hampshire, Khode Island, and New York have
j equally divided delegations; and in Connecti
' cut and Ohio the Free-soilers appear to hold
the balance of power.
Of the thirteen States which are yet to elect,
the Whigs had majorities in the last Congress,
in the delegations of North Carolina and Ken
tucky, two ; the Democrats in tho remaining
States, with the exception of Maryland, whose
delegation was equally divided. It is obvious
that the Whigs must carry eleven of these thir
teen States to have the control of the Presiden
tial vote of the House. The Democrats must
also carry nine to be quite sure. It is, however,
by no means improbable that the States of
Georgia, Mississippi, Louisiana, and California,
will elect divided delegations. la that event,
the Whigs having the control of three of the
remaining delegations, it is difficult to see how
the House will be able to make an election.
Thkik Light Shines.?Messrs. Editor*: Some
drawings, executed by Miss Anna V. Young,
Miss Laura Jones, Miss Sallic W. Young, Mas
ters Richard L. and John H. Maury, have just
been left at Mr. Gray's, as an offering to patri
otism and juvenile improvement. The ages of
the donors are thirteen, thirteen, eleven, ten,
and eight years, showing improvement under a
course of four months' instruction, highly cred
itable both to pupils and teacher. The energies
of hand, head, and heart have evidently been
enlisted- in aid of each other, in work so credita
ble to all.
The -success of these juvenile efforts is ex-1
plained, in part at least, by the remark of a
highly skilful teacher in New York, who said:
" My girls arc very apt to grow careless in their
writing, drawing, and other exercises, unless
they are preparing specimens to tend abroad,
when they always do their very best." The
motive of executing work worthy'to go into the'
hands of some Senator of the United States, a
Foreign Minister, or some similar raduihny
agency, doubtless animated these generous young
spirits in high aims at excellence; which aims
they most surely reached, to the gratification of
themselves, their teacher, and their parents.
Giving light to others can probably, in no case.
fail of increasing light, most of all in the foun- |
tain from which it issues. We indeed learn,
from high authority, furnished some time since,
that ?' it is more blessed to give than to receive."
That lesson fully understood and inculcated by
teachers, and parents too, could probably never
fail of securing good lessons on all subjects
from all pupils. Such, at least, is the conclu
sion drawn from very long and very large expe
rience, by "?
Mr. Riddiic, the United States Commissioner
at the Great Exhibition, is now in New York
city, in quest of something more to exhibit.
The New York Pout thinks that if our me
chanics and artisans will stay at home and at
tend to their own business, they will make a
far better exhibition of American industry than
by parading their traps acroBs the Atlantic to
be gazed at lor three or four months, in the
great toy-shop now open in London, and we
think that the Post is not far from the truth.?

Thic ii 1.00Micit Costume.?The Lancoeter (Pa.)
j Union says: This seems to be gaining rapidly
in public favor. Physicians, us far as we have
heard them speak, have but one opinion of its
healthfulness, and the most intelligent ladies
I think it much less oppressive and uncomfort
able than their present long dresses, by which
' the tyrant fashion compels them to sweep the
streets. Persons are daily seen in the larger
cities, among the fashionable promenades,
dressed in this style, and in some places, par
ticularly in Boston, it appears to excite little
more attention than ordinary dresses.
We think that something of the general
character of the Bloomer dress will be adopted
by the ladies. They cannot adopt anything
more absurdly ridiculous than their present
long dresses.
A Splendid Meteor.?Last evening, at five
minutes past nine o'clock, there appeared in the
constellation of Scorpio a most magnificent and
brilliant meteor. Its disc was as well defined
ns the full moon, and about one-half the diame
ter. The color of the front half was a bright
whitish yellow, passing into a red flame color,
and then into a blue, where the tail commeuccd,
which was about oue quarter the width of the
body, and nearly twice the length of the diame
ter of the body.
It burst out at once in full splendor, just west
| of the body of Scorpio, about on the horizontal
level of Antares, and passed with a very slow
motion toward the southeast, right through the
tail of Scorpio, retaining the same brilliancy till
it disappeared behind a wall within two or three
degrees of the horizon, right under tbe arrow of
Sagittarius. It was several seconds in passing
over this short space, us some remarks were
made by the observers present during its flight.
Its motion was not entirely in a straight line,
but slightly concave below.
It is to be hoped that others at a distance
from Washington, who may have seen this me
teor, will give au account to the public of its
course through the stars, or send their observa

Navy Department, relative to the abolition of
flogging nnd the spirit ration in the service,
wherein he expresses his opinion against the
reform in question. The change was authorized
by Congress recently, and is now in the course
of experiment. There have been instances in
which it has appeared to work well, among the
most conspicuous of which is the case of the
